Are Museums Now Trapped In The Exhibition-Industrial Complex?
Blake Gopnik: "In Tokyo, 758,266 people rush to see the treasures of Holland's Mauritshuis museum; in New York, 605,586 people view the photos of Cindy Sherman, by Cindy Sherman ... these are just a few of the staggering attendance figures for recent exhibitions. Could there be any better sign of the health of our museums? Unless we're seeing symptoms of florid illness." The Art Newspaper 03/28/13
